Study With Us

Thomas Middlecott prepares and raises aspirations.

The academy equips students with the skills to succeed in the world outside our academy gates.

 

We are committed to providing an environment that encourages all students to maximise their potential. We value the individuality of every student and acknowledge the importance of helping students to recognise the extent of their own capabilities.

 

In their first years at the academy, students cover a broad range of subjects with an emphasis on developing the skills and attitudes that will lead to future successes. For more information on our curriculum, including individual subjects, please go to the 'curriculum' section of our website.

 

At Thomas Middlecott Academy we make sure our students learn well both independently and as part of a team. We encourage students to take part in a range of extracurricular activities, including competitive sports that help them develop their ability to succeed in a team and develop their resilience.

We work hard to create a school environment that encourages students' enthusiasm for learning and a determination to achieve to the best of their ability. 

 

Thomas Middlecott Academy broadens horizons.

CAREERS INFORMATION FOR OUR PARENTS/CARERS

Thomas Middlecott Academy is committed to providing students with high quality information, advice and guidance regarding education pathways, apprenticeships and careers.

We aim to help students make informed decisions at key times in their education, for example with option choices in Year 8 and post-16 plans in Year 11 as they plan for further education and training. In addition to dedicated careers input for all year groups, students also have the opportunity to interact with universities and businesses.

 

TEACHERS ROLE IN THE CAREERS PROGRAMME

All staff within TMA have a responsibility for supporting students with their career pathways. In addition to this subject teachers are responsible for ensuring they clearly outline the industry links their subject has with the wider world of work. Useful websites to support 1-1 discussions with students include:

http://www.theworldofwork.co.uk/ - local labour market information

www.careerswales.com – for a range of careers information and support

https://www.gov.uk/apply-apprenticeship - for apprenticeship opportunities

https://icould.com/ - to support students to find out more about themselves

 

CAREERS INFORMATION FOR EMPLOYERS

At Thomas Middlecott Academy we are passionate about supporting our students to achieve their full potential. A key factor in accomplishing this is providing students with inspiration through finding out more about the world of work and the local and regional opportunities. If you are willing to support and can commit time we would be delighted to hear from you.  Below are a few examples of how you could support our careers programme:

  • Mock interview day with year 11 – our learners really value this opportunity
  • Supporting our CV and job skills workshops
  • Providing talks about your industry/sector and your own career journey
  • Allowing a group of learners to visit your place of work
  • Work shadowing/work experience placements 

In dedicating your time to support our careers programme you are not only supporting community development but you can also support your future workforce recruitment needs.
